Gathering Momentum for Percutaneous Mitral Valve

Percutaneous mitral valve repair is being increasingly recognized as an acceptable treatment strategy in high-risk patients with severe MR. The European Sentinel Registry of 628 patients has shown high procedural success (95.4%), low in-hospital mortality (2.9%), and 1-year mortality of 15.3%.

The Prognostic Value of Lipoprotein

Lipoprotein (a) has been shown to be a risk factor for CVD. A study of 826 individuals has shown that lipoprotein (a) can serve as a predictor of CVD outcomes and may improve CVD risk prediction.

Alcohol & the Risk of AAA

The role of alcohol in the pathogenesis of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is uncertain. A Swedish study has indicated that moderate alcohol consumption, particularly wine and beer, is associated with a lower hazard of AAA.

Race, Age & Mortality Following MI

Black patients are less likely to receive evidence-based therapy following MI. Analysis of data from the CRUSADE registry has indicated that, as compared to whites, older black patients had lower initial mortality following an acute MI but this did not persist during long-term follow-up.
